TANVic For Teachers
TANVic member agencies can provide you with superior services. With its many links in the education sector, the TANVic agencies are well placed to help you establish your own networks and further your career. Agencies have the capacity to introduce you to many prospective schools to increase your work opportunities. TANVic agencies work hard to help their teachers maximize their employment opportunities, and they assist and support them in the process to gain full registration. They can also provide introductions to reputable overseas agencies for those wishing to teach overseas.
Each member agency is an individual and privately run business. There are typically two types of agency. Recruitment agencies are agencies who employ and on-hire their casual relief teachers paying wages, superannuation, and work cover with their own distinctive remuneration structures and fees. Booking, or placement agencies secure the work for the relief teacher, but the school remains the employer. Again each agency sets its own service fee structure and has similar but distinct individual registration requirements.
Selection of an agency will depend on your personal circumstances such as career aspirations, your location, financial/taxation reasons and customer service. Depending on the agency you select the type of work you can be offered include casual days, block bookings, and nomination for short term contracts. Many short term contracts are filled from the pool of regular known relief teachers that the agency has been introducing to the school through requested or preferred placement.
